Alright I have posted before regarding this NetServer LH Plus w/ the
Mylex DAC960 RAID controller and the 5 disk SCSI array.
I have managed to install FreeBSD 5.0-DP1 onto the system, however it
fails to boot. Last time it just beeped at me and did nothing, this
was solved by fixing the drive geometry with a win98 boot disk. Now
the problem is that it seems to not be finding the kernel or /boot
device or / partition.
Error message is as follows:
Disk error 0x1 (lba=0x45e080)
|> FreeBSD/i386 BOOT
could this be a large block assignment problem where a lowlevel format
could be necessary?
other than that, im out of ideas. a fellow from italy approached me
stating he has a similar machine and looks like he as well is having
similar problems (but managed to get 4.9 on there).
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
